Benefit Hydra-Smooth Lip Colour | Review

Here is a picture of me wearing Fling Thing, on Christmas day. It isn't very clear, but with just one application you get a lovely colour!

I was lucky enough to receive this lovely Benefit lip product from my mum for Christmas. I've seen them on the Benefit counters and around the blogging world, but never got around to picking one up. My mum picked the perfect shade for me 'Fling Thing' a lovely pink/berry colour. If you've been reading my blog for a while you will know how much I love my berry shades.

The outer packaging is a retro cardboard tube, which I actually like, and although the packaging of the actual lip product reminds me of something my 5 year old niece would own, I love it. The product is pushed up and retracted by twisting the base. 
The Hydra-Smooth Lip Colours are enriched with Shea, Mango Butter & Vitamin E, perfect for leaving lips soft and hydrated. The double slanted tip is used to define and fill your lips, i've found the best way to use the tip is to follow my lip line, and then fill my lips in..like a highlighter pen!

This particular shade from the range has a medium-full coverage, which is easily built up with a double application, leaving it very pigmented and a lovely gloss finish. With it having a medium to full coverage the colour lasts a good few hours without needing to reapply every couple of hours, which is something I definitely look for in a lip product. 

At £15, I think they are quite expensive, but should definitely be added to your Birthday or Christmas (planning ahead!) gift lists or even just a treat to yourself!!
